Random thought re. last Sunday's Primeval

One of the big problems with large tropical reptiles - boa constrictors, pythons, other large snakes, lizards etc. - is that they tend to be very sensitive to cold. People who buy them as pets often run into problems with them getting chronic lung conditions that can be as bad (and ultimately as dangerous) as pneumonia.

But apparently baby dinosaurs can accidentally travel millions of years into the future, plunged out of a tropical environment into a temperate setting, can then be flushed down a lavatory and emerge in the sewers, and spend the next few years wandering around under British conditions, and still leap around nimbly and survive repeated falls and impacts, not to mention repeated electric shocks, without any sign of being short of breath.

Odd, that...
